I have a deep interest in the Nezemeş language of which, I have the following questions about the language's vocabulary and grammarical rules:
Q1. Is there a meaning to the language name, the word "Nezemeş"?
Q2. In the word-combo "anyasahukukeşlarmelgidemlekler", what rule defines the usage of "m" as the vowel-harmony for the word "melgide"?
Q3. For the vowel-harmony of "melgide" and "lek", would it be equally possible to say "melgidellekler"
Thank You for the Time and Reading.
Hey there Vroor, I'm glad you like Nezemeş. It means the "language of mystery". meş is language while nez means mystery and the e is used for vowel harmony.
2) Well, m is a consonant so it wouldn't really be defined under vower-harmony. However, the vowels can modify some consonants...but in most cases they only modify words by either adding or deleting another vowel.
Example where another vowel is deleted: sakindeş - loyalty can became sakindeşedımlaren - loyalty of human beings/people. The vowel "e" here basically is added for vowel harmony. But adding the "e" also deleted the "a" from adlımlar (people) because the two cannot exist together.
Example where another vowel is added: zamlartı - freedom; zamlartızadlımlaren - freedom of human beings/people. Here "z" is added. The easiest rule is: whenever you have "ı" or an "e", in most cases, you just add the first letter of the word as long as it's a consonant.
In both the examples above, "en" is appended to the end meaning "of" of indicating the Genitive case.
3) If you use rule no. 2 now that I've explained, which is, using the first letter as long as it's a consonant (in this case m), you have to use that letter making it: melgidemlekler. But you're right in one way. In conversational speech, the m can be omitted and be pronounced as "melgidellekler" to keep the rhythm.
I hope that helped
